As the Honorary Uce in WWE’s The Bloodline group, Sami Zayn is constantly trying to impress “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns even at live events.
That’s because the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Reigns leads the group that also contains the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, their younger brother Solo Sikoa and the Special Counsel, Paul Heyman.
At a WWE Saturday Night’s Main Event live event in Phoenix on October 15th, Zayn was in the main event of the show along with The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso). The trio faced off against Braun Strowman and The New Day’s Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods.
Most WWE fans know that at live events, the good guys usually win in the main event, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that Strowman and New Day picked up the win. It was Strowman getting the pinfall for his team.
The funny thing about the finish was that Sami Zayn did some Roman Reigns moves toward the end of the match.
Zayn was all alone in the ring with Strowman. Zayn hit his own version of a Reigns-like Superman Punch. After that, Zayn went to the corner and let out a yell the way that Reigns does. When Zayn attempted a Spear (the finishing move of Reigns), Strowman was back up and he caught Zayn with a Monster Bomb. Strowman pinned Zayn to get the win for his team. You can see the video in the tweet below.

Even though Zayn predictably lost at the live event, he did beat Kofi Kingston on the October 14th edition of Smackdown thanks to Jey Uso. In a backstage segment later in the show, Zayn acted like he did it on his own without any help from Jey as those two continue to have issues.
